Flu Vaccine (Lack of .....)

Post by hatusu » Tue Nov 19, 2019 6:39 pm

Anybody know why there is no flu vaccine available yet in Luxor (or possibly the whole country....?)
Is it an attempt to reduce the ever-increasing population numbers?

There will be no flu in Egypt......by order of Generalissimo Sisi!

Foreigners with a temperature or sniffles will be instantly deported. :)

I don't think it's a specific Luxor, or even Egypt, problem. I understand that there have been problems getting sufficient batch quantities in the UK too. It does eventually arrive - hopefully before the flu does. I was told the other day by a health care professional that there are similar problems with the pneumonia vaccine.

As with all such things in preventative medicine, the products can be victims of their own success; supply not keeping up with the demands, no matter how the recommended recipient groups are prioritised.

Yes Hatusu, I was able to have my injection on the 22cnd November, and I was very relieved!! I have major bronchial problems with even minor colds, so try to avoid flu at all costs. Kissing on both cheeks is a common greeting between friends here in Turkey - nope, not me 😡 All kissing is banned until next April, as far as I’m concerned!!!

So Im wondering why we are still without in December???? Perhaps it wasnt a joke when I wrote about it being a way of reducing the expanding population (or reducing the expat numbers.....)
